Received this bottle in person from CasanovaCummins. Poured from a bomber, bottled on 3/14/13, into my Stone goblet.
A - Pours a crystal clear copper/amber color with a very minimal amount of head. Quickly falls to a thin film.
S - Holy hop bomb Batman! This one is just bursting with floral notes and tropical fruits. Mangos, pineapples, and papayas. Smells better than most DIPAs I've ever smelled.
T/M - Caramel malts combine with the hops in such a way that it almost gives the beer a bourbon barrel aged flavor. Kinda coconutty. The hop profile is so big, but the solid caramel malt backbone holds up nicely to it. There is a nice papaya aftertaste tho. A little heat in the taste, but not that bad. Medium slick mouthfeel, a little under carbonated.
O - This is one of the tastiest DIPAs I've tasted. Somehow this one gets hoppier as it warms. Is that posible. I would definitely buy it all day long if I could, but I can't. So if this is available in your area, go out and get a case! Cheers!
